Bachelor of Engineering - Ocean Engineering (Honours)

Edith Cowan University ECU

Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
Level: Undergraduate
CRICOS: 00279B

This course is offered in collaboration with the Australian Maritime College at the University of Tasmania in Launceston, Tasmania. Ocean engineers are involved in the design of some of the largest, most complex, and most expensive structures produced by humankind. These include offshore structures such as oil and gas platforms or subsea pipelines, as well as the wide range of infrastructure associated with the ports and harbour facilities and submersible vehicles required to service them. Applicants from South West WA will be able to study only the first year (up to eight foundation units) of this degree at ECU's Bunbury Campus, which may include attending a short set of lab sessions at Joondalup Campus by the end of each semester. After completing these eight units, Bunbury students will need to attend ECU's Joondalup Campus to complete the rest of their course. This option is only available for domestic students living in the South West region of WA.
